I went to the Atlanta PowerShell Users Group tonight. The topic was tips and tricks. My trick was this script, which task scheduler reads to me in the morning. Assuming you use Hiveminder–and you should, because it’s awesome–you only have to edit the RSS locations for your location and for your to do list.
$weatherurl = "[yahoo weather RSS and city code]" $hiveminderurl = "[hiveminder rss url here]"
You’ll need your yahoo weather city code–for example, this is Alpharetta, GA–and the RSS feed of your hiveminder to-do list for today.
I won a copy of PowerShell in Depth: An Administrator’s Guide, by Don Jones, Richard Siddaway, and Jeffery Hicks. Awesome!
